Hear This…

I love you.

I do know you.

I know pain.

I know hiding and keeping secrets and pretending.

I know you lie to yourself and others.  And I love you anyway.

I know you compete and try to be better than.

I know you put others down in your mind to feel better.

And I love you.

I know you think you aren't worthy.

I know you are sometimes lazy.

And I love you.

I love you when you overeat and when you sneak.

I love you when you overspend and go into debt.

I love you when you cheat on yourself or the ones you love.

There is nothing you can do that will change my love for you.

There is no secret you could tell me that would change that. Ever.

I know you were molested and raped and that you molested others.

And I love you.

I know you stole and cheated and have thoughts that scare you.

And I love you.

I know you yell at your kids and your partner. I know you hate your body and wrinkles.

But I don't.  I love every single part of you.

The cellulite. The muffin top. The sagging parts of you.

I love you when you forget birthdays and feed the kids cereal for dinner.

I love you as you hate your job and I know you sometimes hate your mother.

I love you.

I love you.

I mean it.

You are my people. My clients. My friends.

I love you today and every day.

Just thought you should know.
